‘Zine And Heard
Douglas Perrett—the casting guru behind COACD and its addictive model blog—spends fashion week casting shows like Richard Geller and N. Hoolywood. But he finds time, somehow, to put out his own nineties-throwback zine, Male Model Madness. (In its own words: “Wedged under the industry’s mattress since 2006.”) Photographers like Thomas Dozol, Sharif Hamza, and Sebastian Kim all contribute to the latest issue, which includes both professional runway walkers and street-cast dudes like Wolfe (above), whom Kim shot with some friends in Tompkins Square Park. Perrett and co-founders Kathy Lo and David Covell celebrate the mag’s third issue at Blind Barber in the East Village tonight, where in celebration of Fashion’s Night Out, stylists will be giving free trims. And starting at 9, they’ll be auctioning off dates with a few choice male models to the highest bidder. Gentlemen and ladies, to your paddles.
